So..I MADE A MISTAKE….
I let the words of a few internet trolls take me down. On Wednesday I woke up to some hateful words from people I don’t even know. And to be honest this has been happening more and more as this little space on Instagram grows. Anywho, they were hateful words from hateful people and instead of blocking them all & ignoring them like I usually do, they just happened to catch me at a weak point, and I absorbed them. I believed them. I felt terrible.
This self-love journey isn’t straightforward, it’s not finished, and it sure as heck isn’t easy. I wanted to share this experience because I know I’m not alone. I found a quote that rang so true and made me feel differently – and I wanted to share it with you. (Hit the bookmark on this pic so you can save it for a rainy day) ☀️
“About all you can do in life is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all.” ― Rita Mae Brown
Those mean comments, those are from people that take. Because even though they’re not physically taking something from you, emotionally they are. And that still matters. But those are not the people that LOVE you. Refocus on the people that do. Soak in their love. Because the rest simply doesn’t matter. ❤️
